Forum: GratefulDead Subject: a seriously solid show from 92

like most I definitely think the band hit their peak in the 70`s but i also find good stuff i enjoy in every year. I also think 89-91 were great solid years. everyone bags on the 90`s as unlistenable but I can think of a bunch of kick ass shows from 91. I find 91 to be the last year i listen to a lot i rarely venture out past there however 6-15-92 Giants stadium is a great strong show imo. check it out if you have an open mind. sorry i cant link because im using my phone but the aud is a good one too in addition to the sbd

I saw quite a few shows in 92, and they were consistently poor and unspectacular, very forgettable. Kind of when I got over it.

The Vegas shows in 92 have some good moments.

Johnny,

not a huge fan of 92 especially the spring tour which is very shaky most nights and has Garcia returning to to 1986 form where he just leaves the stage in the second set during jams never to return to space. I also think that the come back shows in the winter are "bland" for lack of a better term,. Nothing bad by any means but the band is definitely in safe mode and the jams are minimal. With that said I do believe that the Vegas run in May is excellent. Start with Friday and listen through Sunday. A very strong run for a weak period in my opinion

thanks J., i actually almost went to this show (i was living in PA at the time), but instead i took off for the 2 following shows in Charlotte (nothing spectacular to report), which ended up being the last two i attended; i'll check out your suggestion, altho i rarely if ever venture so late into the band's career

I like Jerry's tone on this show. even So Many Roads has a sparkle.

i rarely venture that late either Arb. dont get me wrong this aint up there with the golden era nor is there any deep jamming aside from terrapin but the terrapin is excellent ( not one of my favorites usually ) and the box of rain is about as good as it was ever played. the last half is pretty much a throwaway with the throwing stones>nfa but thats more shows than not starting in the 80s. anyway i find it a nice change to get out of the usual rut and have enjoed this one a few times

I saw two shows that month, and at least one of them was quite good, as '92 goes.

Not a super-hot setlist, but a very well-played show--especially the first set. My personal favorite version of Loser.

It is a solid show(and you wont hear me saying that tto much about '92).. I am biased however, as this was my second show of '92 Summer tour. I remember two things very specifically...1. The Heat - it was soo goddam hot for these two nights...2. The crazy wall jumpers getting on the floor both nights. I was really loaded and I think about 75% of the crowd was too. Recycle on blue paper was the "hit" of this tour. Steve Miller was really fun and these two shows were a perfect way to kick off Summer tour for us. We started here and weny right through to Buckeye..Still cant believe that was 19 years ago next month. Ahh the good old days....
